Saskatchewan Impaired driving laws are changing on September 1, 2018


As of Sept. 1, 2018, there are changes to Saskatchewan's impaired driving laws.

Existing laws are stronger, and there are new drug-related offences.

These changes include:

  • immediate licence suspension and vehicle seizure with a driving suspension of up to 5 years if they’re convicted of drug-impaired driving

  • zero tolerance for drug impaired driving for all drivers, including experienced drivers who will face immediate vehicle seizure and licence suspension

  • anyone caught driving impaired while transporting children under age 16 faces longer licence suspensions and vehicle seizures, with new drivers facing a suspension lasting up to 18 months

Your ability to drive safely is impacted after drinking or using any drug, whether legal or not. Prescription and over-the-counter drugs can also make you impaired, and using any type of drug while drinking alcohol can make you even more impaired.
